Michael in Jefferson City

Well, we survived a day at the state capitol for the University of Missouri’s Undergraduate Research Day at the Capitol. Michael Austin presented a poster on some of our work on generalization of learning in evolved populations of flies, which he has been coordinating. We spent the day in the rotunda between the representatives’ and the senate chambers. It was budget day so the place was packed with politicians and lobbyists along with the undergraduate researchers. Hopefully some of the politicians were impressed with the great work the students have been doing.
